Special Tools needed for 1996 Spider 2.0 TS

Hi All!
I just received my 916 Spider Service & Repair manual CD from the mail a few days ago, but it was cracked! And i dont have an Owners Manual as well, so until i get a replacement CD i will have to ask you guys more questions.

Do i need any special tools for doing stuff on the spider, like replacing suspension arm bushings and doing a Wheel Alignment (at the local Alignment specialist who over here anyway, does not carry car specific special tools for what are considered exotics, alfa romeo, porsche,lambo, etc..). What about changing brake pads, wheel bearings,cv joints,etc..?

I`d hate for any damage to be done to this interesting car. Thank You!

The only specialist tools are Ribe bits for various bolts around the engine, and various tools for changing the belts. See Aftermarket Tools for your Alfa Romeo TwinSpark, JTS, JTD, V6 and Twin Cam Engines :: TotallyAlfa for the sorts of things you are likely to need.

For the jobs you listed above, of the top of my head I can only think of a piston rewind tool for the rear brake calipers, this is more standard though.
